Hi everyone, I am a beginner of sorts.....pick up knitting a year ago after a LONG break. We I purchased on Knit Picks the Impressionist Afghan. Did I get in over my head?
Anyone else buy it?
Rosemary, I don't think you are in over your head, but I tend to jump right in. I don't have the pattern but I'm sure we can help you along. There is also the Lace Knit Along that might be helpful. I only suggest it since there is a lace border and there may be some experienced lace knitters who might be able to help with the border.
There is a minor errata posted. Row 7 was mistakenly labeled as row 9.
Haven't bought it but I confess I have been stalking it . . . I think it is a beautiful piece and don't think that you will find it hard -- the body is garter stitch on the diagonal and I love that orientation. I find that by the time I am ready to throw it down I am at the widest point and then from that point on all the rows are shorter! And the holding colors together is always pretty.
I wonder why I haven't bought it yet . . .? Maybe I will join you!
Oh Rosemary..that is a beautiful afghan!
You can do it...I agree with Cheryl...just jump in...
On a fairly complicated lace pattern...I just use post it tabs to mark my row...
Again as Cheryl says..there are a lot of amazing knitters here that can and will help.
LOL Cathie ..stalking a piece of knitting...haha too fun!
Good Luck...remember feet first lol
awww Cathie...YOU deserve a beautiful treat like that woman...
I know the many years of knitting for others children, men, friends, church, charities...I am guilt free...So when I want to treat myself..I just smile in my heart and enjoy lol
Let me know how it's going.. I still have to finish 2 projects I am working on.
Sounds like a deal to me lol
I have put everything on hold..knitting wise...as a friend asked me to help knit preemie caps for her daughter and others.
What a joy and blessing..I pray as I knit each one for the recipient and family..As I believe preemies are Gods little angels he sends us for a purpose.
